Had lunch recently at the Bell and I was so excited to finally try this new Naked Chicken Chalupa thing! Turned out better than I was expecting. Only $2.99 each and it was perfect. Needed nothing else. No cheese roll-up; no crunch wrap; no cinnamon twists; no nothing. Just one Naked Chicken Chalupa. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it, I just like saying “Naked Chicken Chalupa”. Probably more than I like saying “Chicken DoubleDilla”.
This remarkable new chalupa reminds me of the invention of the wheel. Actually it was more like a fried chicken salad turned inside out. Taco Bell created a chalupa shell made of crispy, all white meat chicken and filled it with crisp lettuce, diced maters, cheese and an amazing avocado ranch sauce.
I have to say, it was pretty greasy in the hands. Felt like taking a shower when I was done. Might have been better with a warm flour tortilla adhered to the outside with some sort of cheese substance. Overall an outstanding specialty item on the Bell menu. Unfortunately, it’s limited time only, like all their best stuff. Get in and try one before it goes away for good.
